Thumbs up Hi N2XBW

I just bought a 89 Excella 29 Ft. with a Hensley Hitch after having a new 38 Ft. Luxury 5th wheel that went about 15,000 lbs. loaded.
Pulling with a GMC Duramax I was getting 9 to 10 MPG. NOW I am getting 15 & 16 MPG. This brought my fuel cost done from .45 per mile to only .27 per mile and makes the trips a lot easier on the nerves knowing that I can make a U turn with the Hensely Hitch and the smaller trailer, when I have to. I have found myself going the wrong direction with that big rig we had and it would take miles to find a place to turn it around. So overall My wife and I are much more pleased with the Airstream, even if it has a little less room inside.

As I Stated in my previous post~~~~~~~~~

This is sooooooo true.
This is exactly where we are today in this country. But there people stand with their hands out saying GIVE ME ~ GIVE ME ~ GIVE ME.
They are all so uninformed that they are being led to slaughter with their hands out and a BIG smile on their face saying GIVE ME MORE!

I have posted the previously but as the election gets closer it bares repeating.

Mor(e)on Government

The way people in democracies think of the government as something different from themselves is a real handicap. And, of course, sometimes the government confirms their opinion. ~Lewis Mumford


It might be more worthwhile if we stopped wringing our hands and started ringing our congressmen. ~Author Unknown


The government, which was designed for the people, has got into the hands of the bosses and their employers, the special interests. An invisible empire has been set up above the forms of democracy. ~Woodrow Wilson

The evening news is where they begin with 'Good evening' - and then proceed to tell you why it isn't.

Be courageous. I have seen many depressions in business. Always America has emerged from these stronger and more prosperous. Be brave as your fathers before you. Have faith! Go forward! ~ Thomas A. Edison
